The South Dakota Supreme Court heard arguments on Wednesday, April 28, on the constitutionality of Amendment A. In the 2020 election, almost 55 percent of the state's voters approved the amendment that legalizes cannabis for both medical and recreational purposes. The law officers who brought this suit say the new amendment violates older amendments, especially one added in 2018. Victoria Wicks has this report for SDPB.
